Pump Day at Hogan's Alley Paintball, Meriden CT, June 21

For those of you not on Facebook or who may have missed it, Hogan's Alley is having a pump day on June 21. I'm heading down for it.

I just wish this wasn't Father's Day. Can't make it because of that.

I'll be there.
I'm hoping it will be a better turnout than the first one.
We need a minimum number of players to claim a field for ourselves, otherwise we get thrown in with the regular pick-up games. Which ain't bad, we can still dictate the games we want to play.

Hogans Alley is trying to be helpful to the pump community by holding special days of play oriented to the old skool folk of all ages.
It's up to us to make something of it, and if we (the pump players) fail to do so, there won't be any incentive for the field to continue. Face it, they aren't making any profit on paint sales, they don't have to do this at all.

So if you play pump, and want to see fields hold special days dedicated to the style of play, you have to support the ones who go out of their way to accommodate you.

Bring it on!

Honestly, there are no restrictions like Stock Class.
Air tanks & Hoppers are acceptable, it just needs a pump handle to reload manually ~ No Semi-Auto.
The first game this year only had 5 pump players, even though Hogans has Phantoms to rent.

If we can get double that (just 10 pump players), I'm pretty sure we could claim a speedball field to ourselves for some games.
Woodsball would probably be together with the walk-ons. The field cannot deny other folks who probably paid more to play while we take our time.
Now, we get two dozen then it's a different story. If we can gather 25 or more, then the pump players effectively rule the field for at least that one day that they are setting aside and inviting us to play.

I'll be running Stock but will bring several open class pumps to loan out if we can get other to try joining us.

Working the whole weekend. Even if I wasn't, Father's Day is probably going to be a deal breaker for quite a few folks. It would be for me.
